All our soaps and lotions are carefully handcrafted with thoughtfully sourced ingredients that are good for the skin and gentle on the earth.
Everything we make is inspired and informed by the beauty and bounty surrounding our Northern California studio.
We believe that what you put on your skin should be just as healthy as what you eat. Our soaps are made with eleven skin loving oils, nurturing botanicals, antioxidants, mineral-rich clays, & pure essential oils to cleanse, hydrate & nourish all skin types. We are paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free and never use synthetic dyes. Small batch cold-process production allows us to ensure the integrity of each ingredient.
Our process begins with a careful assessment of each ingredient, measured out and slowly hand blended until all the oils, infusions and botanicals are fully integrated. The raw soap is then poured into simple molds until set, then hand cut, batch stamped, and cure each bar for 8-10 weeks. We then polish, wrap and number the best bars of the batch. Every step of our process is hands-on. It may take more time but allows us to make sure you get the best soap possible.
All our lotion varieties (except Unscented) are made with a unique blend of essential oils, absolutes, and floral and herbal distillates, some of which we produce ourselves using locally sourced botanicals. Some of these ingredients, such as Moroccan Rose, Immortelle, and Rockrose are quite rare and delicate, exceptionally expensive, and would not survive the soap making process. In our lotions, however, their exquisite characteristics provide a rich, persistent and beneficial aroma.
Prickly Pear, Guava, Passionfruit, and Sacha Inchi oils form the basis for all our lotions. These oils contain high levels of linoleic and linolenic acids, essential fatty acids that moisturize and protect without clogging your pores. Their anti-inflammatory properties can also help reduce acne and increase moisture retention. Skin softening Oat, Marula, Papaya, and Plum oils are used to provide a lush texture and absorb rapidly leaving your skin feeling silky with no greasiness.
Beneficial botanical extracts and enzymes provide nourishment and antioxidants to tone your skin and promote suppleness and elasticity.
